1How to Get Those Arms Growing
Have you ever met a guy who thought his arms were TOO BIG? Well, unless he was morbidly obese and had too much fat hanging off his arms the answer is NO. Arms are pretty much the first thing we look at when we are sizing up another guy. Women love to grab your arms when they get scared or when you are having sex with them. Most importantly, having big arms just looks bad ass! You will fill out your sleeves and look like a beast when wearing polo shirts.
While we are all for training every part of your body (yes, including legs) we totally understand that building up those arms is a priority. We’ll leave the legs article for another day and give you guys some advice for building bigger arms. Whether you are new to bodybuilding and want to blow up those pathetic 11” arms or an experienced bodybuilder looking to speed up your gains we’ve got you covered.
1 – Take a Break from Training Arms
If you currently have two dedicated arm days per week (one for biceps, one for triceps) then take a break. There is a good chance your arms are simply being overtrained. Like any muscle group the arms need time to rest and recover. Remember that your arms already get worked on chest day and back day. That means it’s possible your arms are getting worked 4 times per week. Do you work chest 4 times per week? Do you work legs 4 times per week? So why should arms be any different?
Reduce the number of arm workouts you have each week. Try working biceps with back and chest with triceps for a few weeks before even thinking about doing an arms day. Make sure you include dips on chest day and chin-ups on back day as those will give your arms a good workout.
